    UCSF Library’s eScholarship Site 

    The Library now has a departmental space on eScholarship, UC’s institutional repository. Departmental spaces – also called academic units or research units on eScholarship – are designed to showcase a unit’s scholarly output. All content in eScholarship is openly accessible to anyone, anywhere online, and is discoverable via search engines.

    Our space has three series:

    1. Posters
    2. Presentations
    3. Publications

    If you’ve presented a poster or talk at a professional meeting, this year or in the past, or have published works, please submit them so that they can be shared with the world! If you’ve already deposited published works in eScholarship, let me know; they can be cross-listed and linked from the Library’s site as well.

    To make a submission, you’ll need an eScholarship account. See the Submission Guidelines, then click the “Submit Paper to this Unit” button from http://escholarship.org/uc/ucsflibrary and select the series.

    You can either upload your file or link to another freely accessible location for it. Use either the Paper/Article or Book/Chapter form for any file type that contains text, to ensure that it gets OCR’d. Non-textual is for multimedia files.  After you’ve approved your submission, I’ll get pinged to review and release it. See the user guide and video tutorial for additional guidelines.

    If you’d like another series added, please let me know. Also, a note that eScholarship will see a complete redesign late this summer, so expect it to look much nicer soon!

      Should our submissions be limited to work we’ve done since we started working at UCSF?

        Good question. Yes, eScholarship is meant for the work of UC employees, so it should be limited to your work while at UCSF.

    Share your Work on eScholarship – December 6 event 

    This event is for Library staff, at 10:00 am on December 6th:

    Have you been wanting to share your published works openly but haven’t gotten around to it? Don’t miss this opportunity to find out how to share your works on the University of California’s eScholarship platform from the experts! eScholarship is UC’s open access publishing platform for both previously published works, as well as departmental working papers and other documents.

    Previously published works include peer-reviewed final versions of scholarly articles such as those covered by the UC Open Access Policy. All UCSF staff are covered by this Policy.

    California Digital Library guests Catherine Mitchell and Monica Westin will be on site to provide an overview of eScholarship, including how and what to upload, and the upcoming redesign.

    Please register at http://calendars.library.ucsf.edu/event/2954492.

    The Many Paths to Open Access 

    At today’s Library Updates meeting I gave a talk about what’s going on with open access publishing. There’s alot of activity right now around OA publishing as well as some initiatives to transition institutions towards OA on a large scale.

    Here are my slides from the presentation, including notes to clarify what’s on the slides:

    Regarding the Pay-It-Forward project, I wanted to highlight Susan Boone’s  role providing several years’ of UCSF journal payment data to the project coordinator. It was detailed and painstaking work!

    A few people said they were interested in keeping up with developments on these topics. What’s the best way to do that, and for us all to contribute? A Slack channel for scholarly communications topics? Posts to this blog? A wiki page? Add your comment below as to what works best for you!

      Wiki pages, blog posts, and presentations I think. Thank you for a very informative presentation.
      Is there much discussion on how advertisements reduce costs? I looked on PLoS and they cite $40.00/cpm which I assume means someone must click through on the banner.

        Thanks, Alan. I haven’t seen anything specific about how much revenue ads contribute, but I’ll keep an eye out for that info.

      I like the idea of a scholarly communications Slack channel. Slack is well suited for dialog. (And thanks!)

      Thanks Susan. Since the overwhelming response was for a Slack channel, I’ll go ahead and add one. 🙂

    Publishing & Open Access 

    Based on feedback from users, the section on the Library web formerly called “Scholarly Publishing” is now “Publishing and Open Access.” The new menu item should resonate more with our users and will also help them find these pages when they start with Quicksearch.

    Another change you’ll notice in this area is that the Journal Subscription Costs and Journal Cancellation pages are under a new heading, Journals Cost How Much?! Cancellations became Review of Subscriptions, and the older lists of modified journal subscriptions have been consolidated in a single PDF from this page. There are links to Journals Cost How Much?! from related pages like Collections and Resources and Online Journals.

    Stay tuned for additions and improvements to this section in the coming months.
